“Hangover cure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

Average looking chip shop but the fish and chips made up for the surroundings, just what we needed after a gallon of wine the previous night. Little bit pricey but worth it in my opinion. Would recommend a visit.

“A taste of home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Having spent a few weeks in Playa Blanca and having seen the recommendations I decided to get a taste of home with some fish and chips.

Was not disappointed despite being a little more expensive than back home it was worth every penny as chips were fantastic.

If you fancy a tatse of home then go no further than this plaice!!!

“a plaice to be avoided”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Cant fault the customer service shown to my family its a pity they dont have a good product to sell.The chips looked and tasted as if they were reheats and the fish tasted as if it wasnt properly defrosted..As i said the staff were really nice people and thats why i have given them a very generous two stars.They had a notice saying the best fish and chip shop in the Canaries if this is the standard of the chip shops im afraid i will be waiting to come home for my chippy.

“Good fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

Only went here because we had seen it on trip advisor. Good fish. Not the best I've ever tasted but very good all the same. We went in through the main shopping arcade which was a bit depressing but walked through the restaurant to a small terrace with a lovely sea view. If you're fed up with the Canarian potatoes etc. it's a nice change. Wouldn't rate it number 1 in town though.
